Feeling Good in the Neighborhood
Trash and Stash Earns Nextdoor Neighborhood Favorite Honors in Fort Mill, SC
“Won’t you be, won’t you be, won’t you be our neighbor?”
We’re not exactly Mister Rogers, but for the second year in a row, Trash & Stash has been voted a Neighborhood Favorite in Nextdoor’s annual celebration of local businesses in Fort Mill, SC.
We’re sure this wouldn’t have happened without the support of you. Our loyal, local and vocal customers. So, from the bottom of our overall-covered hearts we are thankful and grateful. Thank you for supporting us as we grow and develop. We are who we are because of this community we call home.
We don’t do this type of work to earn accolades and awards, but they certainly are nice, and we welcome this particular recognition as a Neighborhood Favorite with a fair share of pride. It’s a vote of confidence that what we do is resonating with our community.
“It’s a nice pat on the back for us and the guys on the team,” said Trash & Stash bossman Cameron Ungar. “But I think it’s also some validation that we’re doing what we set out to do, which is to provide a service that people wanted and needed.”
That's Great, but what the heck is Nextdoor?
Oh, you don’t know?
Nextdoor is the hyperlocal social networking service that allows neighbors to comment on things going on in their neighborhood, post news, and offer referrals to business. The latter is where Trash & Stash comes in.
“It’s definitely a good referral source for us as a home services business. These referrals carry a lot of weight. They’re helpful to people making a ‘buying decision’” said Ungar.
According to its site, “Nextdoor is where you connect to the neighborhoods that matter to you so you can belong. Neighbors around the world turn to Nextdoor daily to receive trusted information, give and get help, get things done, and build real-world connections with those nearby — neighbors, businesses, and public services.”
And it targets the referrals that Trash & Stash receives, so we’re not getting leads from say New Jersey meant for a gutter installation service.
You have to be an actual member of the neighborhood that you join, which Nextdoor verifies by making you use your real name and verifying your address.
As stipulated by Nextdoor. To gain access to that neighborhood, you must:
- Rent or own a home.
- Own a 2nd home.
- Own property where you are planning to build a home.
- Own a rental property in the neighborhood.
This is important because we know referrals from Nextdoor are from real people and not bots or hackers looking to cause havoc – or even some evil junk removal rival with a paste-on mustache and a bandit mask trying to throw us off the trail <wink>.
“Our business is registered to our zip code on Nextdoor,” explained Ungar. “I’m not an expert, but from my experience, whenever we do business outside our zip code and that person recommends us on Nextdoor, we’ll then show up in that zip code. The more recommendations we get, the more areas we show up in. Those ‘hearts’ are super important in growing the audience in meaningful ways on the platform.”
If you’re a Nextdoor user in the Fort Mill area, please consider referring Trash & Stash to your neighbors in need of junk removal and decluttering help, we promise to give them the best neighborly service possible because we treat every customer and job with the same level of service, regardless of the size or situation.
Our service area is intentionally small so that we can exceed our service promise and best serve our neighbors – from Nextdoor to the next door.
